My TEDx Talk – A Personal Journey To Find Meaning In Success

Is passion all we really need to be happy and successful? In this engaging and humorous talk, Tanveer Naseer shares two personal stories that reveal how purpose leads us to the life we were meant to live.

In writing this leadership blog, I’ve had the opportunity to share several personal stories that help to illustrate some key insights into how we can succeed in our role as leaders. So it seems only appropriate to share here what will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of my career – my TEDx talk that I gave on the topic of finding purpose in what we do.

In my TEDx talk, I share two personal stories from my work career that have helped to shape my understanding of not only what it takes to be a successful leader, but what it takes to achieve enduring success, and the motivation to always bring our best to the work we do.

In many ways, this talk reveals what’s driven me to succeed in the leadership sphere, including being recognized last week in Inc. as one of the Top Leadership Speakers of 2018, a list that includes leadership luminaries Douglas Conant, Marshall Goldsmith, Liz Wiseman, and Daniel Pink, to name but a few.

Some of the personal lessons I share in my TEDx talk include:

  • Our sense of purpose is not simply derived by what we do, but by how we choose to view what we do [Twitter logoShare on Twitter].
  • We all long to feel like we’re a part of something bigger than ourselves; that we understand the impact of our contributions [Twitter logoShare on Twitter].
  • If we’re not fulfilling our purpose, how can our successes truly matter? Why will we care about these achievements once the glow has faded? [Twitter logoShare on Twitter]
  • Our real strengths push us to challenge ourselves to do and be better than we are today [Twitter logoShare on Twitter].
  • Our passion is a reflection of the sense of purpose we gain from the work we do, and the lives we choose to live [Twitter logoShare on Twitter].

 

 

The overall mission of TED is to offer “ideas worth spreading”. To that end, I’d like to end my piece with a request. I’d like to ask that you not only watch my TEDx talk, but that you share it with others, either by sharing this blog post or by sharing this link to my TEDx talk on YouTube.

I want to encourage you to share my TEDx talk not just with your work colleagues, but with your family and friends because I truly believe this is an idea that’s not only worth spreading, but can provide immense value to others to understand how they can achieve meaningful and enduring success.
